We’re proud to work out with the amazing team at InnerCity Weightlifting every Thursday morning at 8AM PST. Most of our team shows up to the zoom meeting with their workout clothes, a towel, and a big smile. It lasts an hour and it’s as easy or intense as you make it. Our certified trainer, Adam Hayes, leads us through three sets of 8 simple exercises (like pushups, lunges, and burpees.) It lasts an hour, and then we start our days feeling freaking great about ourselves.
What is InnerCity Weightlifting?
ICW's mission is to reduce gun violence by amplifying the voice and agency of people who have been most impacted by systemic racism and mass incarceration. They partner with program participants through case management and careers in and beyond personal training. Individuals are elevated as experts in fitness and the social issues they've lived. ICW is a culture and community in which power dynamics are flipped, social capital is bridged, and new leaders emerge in the fight to combat long-standing inequities.
They’re just an all around amazing organization. Learn more on their website or watch their segment on ESPN.
